Ozone Explore V1 Depower Kite >>
Built for simplicity and ease of use for all rider levels. The Ozone Explore V1 is the master of accessibility. This single surface design opens up a world of snowkiting opportunities, allowing you to ride confidently in an instant, adventure in new terrain and discover nature's snowy wonders.
For the advanced rider it offers a whole new feeling, opening up new ways of riding and pushing the boundaries. It has versatile handling depending on your ability - tight and dynamic or slow lazy loops, both essential for navigating difficult terrain. Riding down slopes with the kite de-powered up high or to the side allows more concentration on riding and less worry about the kite.
For experts on backcountry missions or touring expeditions, the lightweight design means it can fly in very light wind, allowing you to work the low end efficiently without having to worry about keeping the kite in the sky. The single surface design is also ultra compact making it easy to pack multiple kites.
When it’s time to take a break or pack away you will find the Explore easy to land as it incorporates our industry-leading Internal Re-Ride Release System. This effective, easy to use, self-landing system means you can land the kite quickly whenever needed and it will remain in an open position ready to be re-launched.
The Explore V1 is available as a Kite Only option or Kite Complete with the Contact-Snow Control System.
Internal Re-Ride Release System:
The Internal Re-Ride Release System is the result of two years research and development by Ozone's design team and pro riders, with the aim to create the safest system on the market. The goal was to have a release system that once activated the kite can easily be re-launched without having to untangle or clear any lines. The unique Re-Ride Release System stalls the kite with an internal line – the kite de-powers instantly without tangling and will sit on the ground ready to re-launch when you're ready again.
Another advantage of our Internal Re-Ride Release System is the land and secure option. The Secure Loop can be found in the 5th line approx 2m up from the control bar. To land the kite simply pull the 5th line through the chicken loop until you reach the Secure Loop. The kite will stall and fall to the ground without any pull. Use the Secure Loop in the 5th line to keep the kite on the ground - it can either be hooked onto a carabineer on your harness or over the bar horn. This makes landing and packing your kite safe and easy even in high winds.

Who is this kite designed for:
Ozone Subzero - 4m:
The 5m is ideal for training purposes, light
riders or super storm strong winds. It is stable and produces
good solid power when you move it. If you can only have one
kite and you weigh less than 50kg then this is for you.
Ozone Subzero - 6m:
The 7m is ideal for light riders or strong
winds. It is fast handling and produces good solid power when
you move it. If you can only have one kite and you weigh less
than 70kg then this is for you.
Ozone Subzero - 9m:
This kite is a dream and a perfect all rounder,
ideal for riders that want to do a bit of everything. I like
the kite because it is perfect for cruising, jumping or mountain
Ozone Subzero - 12m:
The 11m is a power house and will pull almost
anything. If you like to jump and fly then this is what you
might be looking for. For a big kite it handles well and the
de-power is excellent.
Depower Control Bar
Ozone Explore V1 Control-Snow Megatron Control Bar System:
The Contact-Snow Control System offers the latest in safety features, a clean control bar design and a simple easy-to-use trimming system.
Push Away Quick Release – The control system features a new Megatron pushaway quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces (under 8kg) allowing for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.
Three Safety Modes – The new Contact-Snow Control System offers riders a choice of three safety modes; the recommended Flag Out safety, or the optional Brake Handle or Suicide safety modes.
The recommended Flag Out safety offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
Anti-twist 100% Flag Out Line – The flag out line running through the Megatron & safety leash attachment at the bottom keeps the leash tangle free when doing rotations and manually unwinding the centre lines using the Spinning Handle.
Low Friction Centre Piece – The new control bar features a low friction aluminum centre piece designed to reduce trim line wear.
Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle allows chicken loop auto positioning, offering easy unhooked riding and hooking back in.
Magnetic trim handle system – The Magnetic trim handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when the trimmer is depowered.
PU Covered trim line & Ronstan Orbit Pulley – The tough PU covered trim significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out, whilst the smooth running Ronstan Orbit Pulley also prevents trim line wear.
The Contact-Snow Control System bar sizes come in 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or for riders wanting even easier hooking in & out.
